Flying The Heavy Glass

Up until now Ive been using the cheap kit lens from my old Canon XTi on my 50D, which hasn't been doing it justice. Granted, I can get some ok results from the little EFS 18-55mm, but the lenses are junk and (to me) it shows in the final product.

Today I said what the hell, and strapped on the 16-35 f2.8 L-series lens on the 50D and took a few test shots. Its a $1500 piece of glass and I was pretty nervous at first, but once I locked in the AceOne and let her hover, I felt much better. The results are pretty decent... alot better than the 18-55.

Pics shot as the sun set at around 6pm today.
